COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first beer to come out of our vats, back in 1985, making it the classic beer of Brouwerij ‘t IJ. It is a ‘tripel’, the category reserved for the stronger, blonde beers in Belgian tradition. Zatte more than lives up to expectations in this respect. It is a full-bodied, golden beer with a scent of fresh fruit mingled here and there with a hint of grain. The flavour is slightly sweet, ending with a fine, dry aftertaste. A delicious beer that can be enjoyed in all seasons.

yngwie (16711) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. An unclear, cloudy orang-golden beer with a small, off-white head. Small floaties as well. Evident bretty aroma with fruityness, yeast and sourness. A slight alcohol touch as well. There’s also a little rubbery note, but so hidden it doesn’t disturb at all. Medium to full body, sweetness in the background, sourish and effervescent. The flavor is fruity, sourish and funky with yeast and barnyard. Quite bitter finish, but there’s no problem finding the sourish, barnyardish flavors, and it’s quite fruity as well. Cute, untypical tripel. (080426)

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2008
Cloudy and slight dark straw color with a big white head that recedes, leaving a bunch of lacing behind. Slightly sweet and spicy aroma, some coriander there, also a tad bit of funk. The taste is a bit murky (in a good way) and sweet with some funk in the finish. Another interesting t’IJ - I like their funk character.

dchmela (3031) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2008
Thanks to Solan for suggesting this. Pours cloudy orange gold with lots of carbonation and a thick fluffy white head. Citrus, yeast, and sour aroma. Has a medium bodied, with a sour, orange citrus taste. Very smooth drinking despite the big carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter. An interesting blend of flavors, very good.
